Health and safety of healthcare staff

The healthcare sector is large, employing around 10% of all workers throughout
the European Union. More than three quarters of them are women. Workers
employed in this sector have to deal with a wide range of activities and
environments that pose a threat to their health and put them at risk of
occupational disease or work-related accidents. In the Agency's updated
healthcare section you will find a broad variety of good practice information
ranging from the prevention of needlestick and sharps injuries to promoting
mental health in a form of case studies, frequently asked questions, risk
assessment tools and links to relevant information across Europe.
